Orlando was our tour guide. We were picked up on time and whole trip was worth the money. We went with fantastic bunch of team. We were lucky we got to see several places which was not on the itinerary because our team followed instruction as per Orlando advice this helped us to save some time and because of that we got bonus places added to our trip. Trip was fantastic. Since we went early morning places were not over crowded and this helped us to enjoy the place nicely and click pics without any issues. My self and my husband would personally like to Thank Orlando for assisting us with clicking pictures of us together which were fabulous. He is not only a good tour guide but also a fabulous trip partner. Thanks hit the road team.

The reverse trip is a smart idea to avoid the crowd and cover the distant point first while you have the morning energy. You won’t feel tired this way and still be able to cover all the points. Jack our guide is fantastic and very kind. He has a great sense of humour and is very hospitable, entertaining. He made regular stops and at made sure we stopped at the best eateries and coffee places with special tour discount. This is one tour you must choose to make the best out of your great ocean day.

The tour started at St Paul's church at 6:55 AM I booked the regular tour and was put on the premium tour as solo to even out the van loads for the day. I was led by Chris who was outstanding. He did this as a side gig from his regular profession as a photographer and media professional. Chris came out to all the sights and was very helpful in offering to get all the pictures you needed, Its a great benefit for those solo travelers. We drove about 1.5 hours before we stopped for a coffee break and then carried on another 1 hour so till our 1st stop We got to the 12 Apostles early before the massive tour buses came to the park. This is a lot of driving and its a long ways from the city center but its 100% worth it. The most beautiful places in the world are not easily accessible and this tour makes it worth it. Chris played great music the entire trip and also gave great stories about the landmarks and the history about them, You would be a fool to be this close to these great natural wonders and not see them. We got back to downtown around 1830. Highly recommended tour!

We had an extraordinary tour with our guide Jack, who was just amazing and very funny! He is a safe driver, and good story-teller. I would recommend the reverse itinerary once we could enjoy all stops without any crowds. Jack, thanks a lot! Priscila & Theo

Amazing tour with our guide Leanne whom guided us on the Great Ocean Road reverse itinerary. The views were incredible (Weather Dependant). Leanne was very attentive and caring throughout the tour. Providing us with little surprises every time we returned to the van, she also came prepared with some motion sickness pills (recommend to bring your own) as the road does get pretty bumpy.

I loved the stories and history of the Great Ocean Road and Melbourne in general which Leanne told along the trip which made the trip so much better. She’s very knowledgeable of Australia’s history and culture, as well as many fun facts of landmarks which we pass by along the trip.

It is a long trip (Approx. 11 hours), so be sure to plan ahead.

If your looking for a fun and interesting trip. Definitely join Hit The Road Tours for a Great Ocean Road trip.

Wow...What a day from beginning to end Our Tour Guide Jack was nothing but a well informed , very considerate and entertaining tour guide. My Wife and I had an absolute blast. We were so impressed by the way Jack guided us through the whole day even including 2 extra stops. If you want to go on a tour and see the great ocean road , I strongly recommend Hit The Road Tours and ask for Jack as your tour guide.

The whole experience was incredible. My family had an amazing time and we would strongly recommend this tour for anyone. We saw all the incredible rock formations and heard all about the history of both the Great Ocean Road and its creation and about the different rock formations; the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, Razorback. Orlando gave us a fantastic tour of the Great Ocean Road and I would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting a tour of this wonderful attraction.

I wanted to surprise my husband on a tour for his birthday. I found this tour and I rang and left a message on the mobile number provided. Orlando returned my call and I asked a few questions, he answered them and I was happy to go ahead with this tour.

On the 20th March 2022, Orlando came to our hotel, picked us up at 6.30 am and then picked up the other passengers at another location.
The tour on the day was totally booked out and being a small tour it made it feel more personal.

The overall experience was fantastic, we both enjoyed our day, it was relaxing and our tour guide Orlando was excellent and we couldn't ask for a better day.

We were left very happy and best of all my husband was pleasantly surprised as I was able to keep it a secret right up to the last minute.

I would recommend this tour "The Great Ocean Road -Premium Tour.

Long drive like most people said but that’s expected given we signed up for a day tour! Everything was organised and pretty much punctual, which we appreciated deeply. I’m actually quite impressed by the number of things that were fitted into a day tour without any major delays. There were lots of stops to stretch our legs and take bathroom breaks too - very thoughtful gesture. Jack was a safe driver and sensitive to the moods and needs of the tour group. The bonus stop to the chocolatier was a pleasant surprise that made an otherwise typical tour special!

In terms of improving the itinerary, perhaps we could skip the kangaroos at the golf course but instead do a quick stop and photo-moment at the Great Ocean Road arch given its historic significance. Thank you for the experience :)

The Apostles and Loch Ard views were my favorites, however we enjoyed every bit of the tour,worth our money and time,especially with Gui our guide, very informative, friendly and very accommodative.We were picked up and dropped of on time,were given enough time to immerse in the beautiful sceneries. This was the perfect small tour experience.with beautiful country side,rolling hills,high land road through gum tree forest where koalas find their home and the majestic the great ocean road!.Every one visiting Melbourne shouldn't miss this tour.
